      This Canadian director, best-known for his feature debut "The Grey Fox," was branching out to screenwriting as well when struck down by leukemia at the age of 41 in 1995. Borsos already had a reputation for directing TV commercials and theatrical shorts in Vancouver, having been nominated for an Oscar for his 1980 short "Nails." His feature debut took everyone by surprise: "The Grey Fox," the story of real-life 19th century train robber Bill Miner, was a low-budget but warm-hearted, big-as-all-outdoors tale that not only made a star of Richard Farnsworth, but also utilized the Washington state exteriors to great effect.
